Originally written after the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, this arrangement is dedicated to all victims of natural disasters. The limited ranges and simplistic harmonies, combined with the emotional impact of the text and music, make this an ideal piece for any choir.

COVID-19 NOTES: This year may be the year to revisit this gem of a piece. Not only is the message one that will resonate with our students during this difficult and challenging time, but the simplicity of the piece will lend itself to the various forms of rehearsal you may be facing (socially distanced, digital, etc.).
